BEIJING (Sputnik) - As Chinese and Russian companies were banned from engaging in construction of a new unit of the Czech Dukovany nuclear power plant (NPP), Beijing still hopes that the Czech Republic will respect market rules and maintain a non-discriminatory business environment, the foreign ministry's spokeswoman, Hua Chunying, said on Tuesday.
"We hope that the Czech Republic will strictly adhere to the principles of fair competition and market economy and provide an open, fair, transparent and non-discriminatory business environment for investment and normal operation of foreign companies," Hua said at a briefing.
The law excluding Chinese and Russian companies from the list of potential participants in the NPP construction was reportedly signed by Czech President Milos Zeman on Monday.
The so-called low-carbon law was previously approved by both chambers of the Czech parliament. Among other things, it excludes Russian and Chinese companies from the list of potential participants in the construction.

Under this legislation, only technologies from countries that joined the 1996 international agreement on state orders can be used in Dukovany NPP units construction and during subsequent operation. Neither Russia nor China are signatories of the deal.
